Located in the picturesque magical village of Sighisoara, Romania, this greenhouse and nursery has been operated by the Dumitrescu family for nearly a hundred years, during which time their green awning and the carts of colorful flowers out front of the shop have become a staple along the cobblestoned street, with witches and wizards all over the country traveling to the village for their herbology needs.
The greenery is primarily situated indoors, just down the street from several other shops, and primarily focuses on houseplants and things that are actively growing and can be replanted. In addition to the several greenhouses full of decorative and practical plants, however, they also boast an ample selection of fresh flowers that can be gathered into a beautifully designed arrangement by one of the shop's florists.
Once inside the seemingly small shop, visitors are greeted by a front counter to the left of the entrance and a room filled with all manner of pots, dirt, and other gardening implements available for sale. From here, customers are invited to explore the labyrinth of greenhouses that are stocked with a world of different plants and herbs from around the globe.
There are three primary sections to the greenery, the seasonal greenhouse to the left side of the main shop, the outdoor yard near the back of the shop, and the spring greenhouse to the right side of the shop. There is also a workroom accessible by a door near to the outdoor sales yard that is only accessible to employees. Throughout the year plants are shifted from one section of the greenery to another depending on the season so that the plants kept outside are acclimated to the current weather conditions. These are mostly shifted in and out of the seasonal greenhouse, with winter and fall plants being kept indoors during the summer, and so on.
The spring greenhouse is kept at the same temperature year round to account for the floral arrangements and the vast number of seedlings made available to customers. As the weather during the spring can vary wildly, the winter plants may be kept outside longer until it is suitable for the summer plants to be moved in, or in a pinch the seasonal greenhouse can be split between three seasons of weather instead of just two. The Floral Department is always busy as well, and the florists at Dumitrescu Greenery create growing and living works of art for weddings, funerals, and other special occasions that they will deliver just about anywhere for the right price.
